The book starts, as it should, with what and where to measure. Given my current lack of waist, I haven’t done this lately. (But I’m looking forward to it in somewhere between 6 and 36 months from now. Keepin’ it real.)
…while providing garment construction and finishing details tips along the way for everything from bias tape creation to buttonholes. So many tips and techniques that are useful for skirt making as well as many other sewing projects. It’s a skill building book that manages to be readable and digestible. While the book aims to be a beginning sewer’s reference, there are a number of advanced skills and some options that require more intermediate to advanced tools and skill. In my mind, that’s a good thing. I don’t want to spend money and dedicate time and space to books that I’ll be done with after one run-through. Start with a basic project here and then come back and build on those skills in later projects.
On top of being useful and information-filled, it’s beautiful to absorb.
